Yup - yet again my crafting motivation has packed up it's bags and gone for a hike. Sitting down and trying to put something together is such hard work and when it's hard I am less likely to even try.
I also have to admit that I have been dealing with a few family issues that have put me in a spin. For other people it might be something that would not cost them a thought and they would pick themselves up and brush it off, but I am not that sort. Unfortunately I take it all in and I am sick with upset and my poor head won't stop turning the problem over and over - but one thing I do know is that time will help and I won't feel like this for long.
This card was something I saw on one of the Papertey Ink sites - the folded banner is stamped on both sides and then folded and stuck in place. Loved the ides so much that I had to have a go at it.
The card below is one I made at one of our evening crops - I had only little bits of the My Minds Eye papers left so it was perfect to make into a quilt style card. It looks much better in real life but the light here in Ireland is so poor at the moment the photos look grey and dull.
This last card was the one I made and sent out for St. Patricks Day - I think I made 6 of them in the end. The shamrocks are cut out of felt and sewed into a circle and a small button put inside.
Hopefully things will return to "normal" and I can find my lost mojo! Wishing you all a lovely happy St Patricks Day!
